After a well deserved Monday off, the New York Yankees finally returned home to host and beat-down the cellar-dwelling Boston Red Sox.

Entering the bottom of the seventh-inning the Boston Red Sox trailed by just one run. Entering the top of the eighth, the Sox trailed by 10.

The New York Yankees used a nine-run bottom of the seventh to come away with a 13-3 victory in their first game back from a 10-game road trip.


Catcher Brian McCann finished 2-5 with four runs batted in and a run scored. Included in these numbers was his three-run home run in that ridiculous seventh-inning explosion.

Another guy who did his part was Chris Young (3-4 with 3 RBI and a HR) and Mark Teixeira (2-5 with 2 RBI). Masahiro Tanaka picked up his eighth win of the campaign allowing three runs through six innings.

Both teams will go back at it on Wednesday night.
